Ask a Question
  • Is this suitable for a container? If not, is there another dwarf plum that might do well in a container?

    We do not have plums that can live a full life in a container, those rootstocks are not available to us. You can grow it in a container for 5-8 years with some annual pruning to keep it smaller, but eventually it will have to be transplanted or root pruned.

  • is the prune d'tente a good pollinator for empress plum tree

    Yes, they should work together just fine.

  • What tree would you recommend for a pollinator for this tree?

    Any other European plum tree should cross pollinate fine.

  • can an Italian prune plum be used as a pollinator for this tree?

    Techincally yes, though in some climates (like the PNW) Italian Prune is a poor pollinator, blooming too late and making too little pollen.

  • Is this plum close to the Italian prune plum?

    Yes and no. Yes, in that they are both drier plums, easier to make prunes from, but the Prune D'Ente is a richer and denser plum with a higher sugar content. It also ripens later.

  • Is it better to get two trees for better results?

    Two differnet plums yes, but not two of the same tree. Another European plum will improve yields.

  • There are some plum tree varieties that don’t mind clay soils, sogginess and damp soils in the dormant/Winter season. Is this one of them? Thanks 🙏

    The rootstock does tolerate wet and poorly draining soils yes.

  • Would it do well in Western WA and Eastern WA?

    Yes, believe it or not!

After losing citrus trees to freeze for the second time in two years, I decided to go a different direction with my replanting. I ordered this lovely dwarf plum. It arrived, still dormant, with damp packing around the roots. I followed Raintree’s planting instructions, so now we’ll just see how it goes. Fingers crossed. I’ll update after a few months

I received this tree on time and in excellent shape, in fact, it is better than I could have imagined. I also ordered several other fruits from Raintree, and I will be back for my future needs. Thanks for great service and plants.

Limbs are crispy and dry.
Not any sign of life
Planted as directed but I have no hope.

Very expensive mistake to purchase
